'Spectrology' has had 4 star reviews in the Daily Mirror, Uncut, R2 and Maverick, radio play on BBC 6Music and reached #1 in the Americana UK/Maverick americana charts. Inspired by the storytelling traditions of American folk and country music, Hill’s songs also have a distinctly British lyrical bite and cover love, loss, infidelity, suicide, attempted murder, capital punishment, the database state, terrorism, religion, war, fallen angels, the secret rulers of the world and the redemptive power of country music. Hill is an accomplished raconteur and powerful live performer delivering a show that is emotional, often funny, usually political, occasionally angry, sometimes satirical but nearly always gentle and human.

R2 ROCK N REEL R2 (4 stars) 'The Loner's acoustic guitar-gilded explorations shine.' DAILY MIRROR (4 stars) 'Dissecting heartbreak with surgical precision. Highly recommended.' AMERICANA UK (8/10) 'Nicely textured with a sad lulling country vibe.' SHINDIG Read more on Last.fm.
